Fanless System with Reliable Thermal Design
The DRPC-240's thermal design is optimized for better heat conduction using a pin-fin heatsink concept. This enhances two dimensional heat conduction and reduces flow impedance for better heat dissipation in this fan-less system. The overall weight is thus reduced by 35%, significantly enhancing system reliability in vibration-sensitive applications, such as AGV. Moreover, this innovative thermal design allows the DRPC-240 to maximize superior performance compared to those with traditional plate heatsink consisting of parallel fins.

Quad Port 2.5 Gigabit Ethernet with PoE Power
The DRPC-240 equips four 2.5GbE RJ-45 ports to meet requirements of bandwidth-demanding applications. In addition, the DRPC-240 compliant with the IEEE 802.3af PoE standard offers 4-port 15.4-watt PoE capabilities by the optional PoE power module (GPOE-DRPC-240), which helps to transform all of the four 2.5GbE ports to PoE capable.
The DRPC-240 can supply a total power budget of 60 watts to meet the demands of many power devices (PDs) (such as IP cameras, wireless APs, IP phones and LED lights).
Dual 4K Displays with Immersive Graphics and Media Performance
The DRPC-240 is equipped with one HDMI™ 1.4 port and one DP++ port, both support pixel-accurate 4K resolutions and empower manufacturers to access clearer analysis and management via panel displays or interactive displays. The DP++ connector allows the use of a simple, inexpensive passive adapter to convert to HDMI™. It is completely plug and play, handles both video and audio, and does not need any driver to work.
Industrial I/O Connectivity
The DRPC-240 offers a rich array of expansion possibilities, including COM, LAN, PoE, USB and much more. It also offers HDMI™ and DP ++ outputs, so you’ll never be stuck for display options.
In addition, the isolated COM ports enable the DRPC-240 to be protected against voltage spikes and common-mode transient event. The DRPC-240 embedded system even has M.2 slots for Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and LTE add-on modules for exceptional wireless speed and connectivity.
Remote Power Control
Remote power on/off allowing technicians to power up the system from a distance can help save maintenance effort and cost.
2.5kV Isolated COM Ports Ensure Reliable Connectivity
All of the four serial ports on the DRPC-240 are protected against 2.5kV isolation to prevent accidental high voltage shorts, lightning surges and ground loops, so that the DRPC-240 will not be damaged while connected.
RS-422/485 Runs with Automatic Flow Control (AFC)
The two RS-422/485 ports support Automatic Flow Control (AFC), which can ensure UART buffers are never overrun so data transmission between devices can be complete without the risk of losing data.
AI Inference System
The DRPC-240 has sufficient serial ports for connecting with devices that require low-speed signal such as alarms or sensors. For connecting devices needing high-speed signals, use the two USB 3.2 Gen 2 ports which transmission speed could reach up to 10Gb/s. Equipping multiple LAN ports is also a key feature of the DRPC-240. Advantages of LAN include inexpensive, highly reliable and easy to install and maintain. Multi-LAN not only supports high speed communication between devices, but is also easy to segment into intranet and extranet for security.
The DRPC-240 with expansion layer features rich I/O and PCIe x4 signal to support add-ons like the IEI acceleration cards (Mustang-V100-MX8 or Mustang-V100-MX4), opening the door to faster deployments of AI inference systems with the combination. It enables machine learning by using a variety of training models to simulate and infer the status or appearance of objects. For example, the inference system with the video analysis model can perform face and vehicle license plate analysis for safety and security purposes.
The demands on the intelligence of buildings have increased constantly in recent years, such that the energy efficiency as well as a good “return on investment” is the priority. The idea of a “green building” based on sustainable, energy-efficient construction and building use can be realized with intelligent, integral building automation. DRPC-240 provides six set of serial ports which can fulfill user’s demands to connect a large number of devices through serial ports. Utilizing Ethernet connections to communicate with other control system, users could monitor building status and control devices, achieving easy remote management.
Information technology adds intelligence to factories from design to the end of the process. Today’s technologies automate the collection, storage and retrieval of data from across multiple factories and factory sub-systems to make that data available for decision makers, from facility managers to supervisors. DRPC-240 plays a role as the data collector gateway, connecting end devices with the data base. It could also connect with data dashboards to display information like load p rofile analysis, energy usage benchmarking, utility rate benchmarking, and energy budget tracking. Considering the needs of the applications in harsh outdoor environments, the DRPC-240 can support wide operating temperature from -20ºC ~ 60ºC.
